Rekindle the Fire Renewal Weekend 2019

De Colores to all members of our Living Water Community!

Do you have some special memories from your Via de Cristo weekend? Perhaps you felt God’s grace in a way you never had before. Maybe you left the camp eager to serve our Lord in new and exciting ways. But life has a way of wearing us down. So Living Water is offering you the opportunity to get that “spark” back again!

“Rekindle the Fire” is a co-ed renewal weekend for anyone who has attended a VdC weekend or similar retreat. It will be held Nov. 8-10 at Camp Menno Haven in Tiskilwa, IL. The abbreviated weekend begins at 7 p.m. on Friday (registration opens at 6 p.m.), and will conclude about 3 p.m. on Sunday. This is different than a regular VdC weekend, but has many of the same elements. It will include new, inspirational talks by both lay persons and clergy; worship opportunities; time for fellowship and reflection; and, of course, plenty of good food. The cost of the weekend is $125. To register, please fill out the “Rekindle” application below. For more information, contact Pam Gross at (309) 738-2385 or Andey Koresko, (309) 738-4181.
Your Sister in Christ,

Welcome To The Living Water Via de Cristo Website

VIA de CRISTO is based on the fundamentals of Christianity, concentrating on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ. The focus is not on VIA de CRISTO itself, but on the environment of the community of believers. The objective of the ministry is to inspire, challenge, and equip people for Christian action in their homes, churches, and communities. 

VIA de CRISTO is intended for lay people from every walk of life, for pastors, for people who live strong and active lives in Christ, and also for those who seek to be renewed and strengthened in their relationship with Christ and the people around them. VIA de CRISTO is open to married couples, and single men and women.

For more information about this 72 hour spiritual retreat just click on the “About Us” menu tab above.

Upcoming VIA de CRISTO Weekends:

Men’s:          March 19-22, 2020
